A James Franco film.


USA 2017

“Since its release in 2003, the cult-classic disaster-piece The Room has captivated cult audiences. Every facet of the film baffles (and beguiles), none more so than the uncanny yet magnetic presence of it eccentric director and star, Tommy Wiseau, inhabited magnificently in The Disaster Artist by director and star James Franco.

Drawing on the memoir of the same name, Franco chronicles the making of The Room as recalled by Wiseau’s friend and reluctant co-star.  It is a brilliant comedic portrayal of a Hollywood outsider by a Hollywood insider – and the most sincere veneration of a Z-grade auteur since Ed Wood. TIFF
